1 Lord, speak to me that I may speak
in living echoes of thy tone;
as thou hast sought, so let me seek
thy erring children, lost and lone.
2 O lead me, Lord, that I may lead
the wand'ring and the wav'ring feet.
O feed me, Lord, that I may feed
thy hung'ring ones with manna sweet.
3 O strengthen me that while I stand
firm on the Rock, and strong in thee,
I may stretch out a healing hand,
filled with thine own great charity.
4 O fill me with your fullness, Lord,
until my heart shall o'erflow
in kindling thought and glowing word,
thy love to tell, thy praise to show.
5 So send me, Lord, and lwt me be
an incarnation of thy care,
until thy blessed frace I see,
thy rest, thy joy, thy glory share.
